New Rules for Minnesota Twins/MLB 2020 Season
Major League Baseball's 60-game season is set to start on July 23rd. In addition to fewer games, there are several rule changes that will mix things up this year.
The Twins open their 2020 season on July 24th against the White Sox in Chicago. The team's first game at Target Field is July 28th against the St. Louis Cardinals.
As of today, four Minnesota Twins players have tested positive for the coronavirus, including Miguel Sanó, Willians Astudillo, and two minor league players on the 60-man camp roster. Both Sanó and Astudillo say they feel fine.
The Twins' schedule will be a mix of games against American League Central Division and National League Central Division opponents to reduce travel. Twenty of the team's sixty games will be against National League opponents, and forty will be against American League teams.
There will not be fans in the stands for the games, at least to start. State governments will have the final say on whether or not fans may eventually return to the ballparks. All 60 Twins regular season games will be televised on Fox Sports North, and carried on Saint Cloud's AM 1240/95.3 FM WJON.
The Twins will be defending their 2019 American League Division Championship.
